Birr Festivals Collective
Town Hall Meeting
Do you want to know more about Birr’s five festivals? Perhaps you’d like to become a Birr Festivals volunteer?
Birr Festivals Collective is hosting a Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday 27 April in Dooly’s Hotel at 9pm.
On the night, the Collective will launch its plans for the festival season in 2022 and introduce the Birr Festivals Collective project and Colm Croffy, the Festivals Project Coordinator.
Birr’s five festivals (Birr Festival of Music, Scripts Ireland’s Playwriting Festival, Birr Vintage Week and Arts Festival, OFFline Film Festival and Hullabaloo! Offaly’s Children’s Arts Festival) came together under the umbrella of Birr 20/20 Vision prior to the COVID-19 lockdown to commission the Report "Seeing the Beyond, - Birr Festivals Planning for A Shared Future”.
It was launched in October 2020 and proposed the establishment of the Birr Festivals Collective. In the summer of 2021, resources were provided by the Arts Council of Ireland to fund a Projects Coordinator as part of the pilot project.

A healthy and prosperous Birr where it’s easy for people to engage with culture, the arts, science and heritage.
To devise and present high-quality festivals and events that promote and support artists and their work, and that foster public engagement with culture, the arts, science and heritage in Birr.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for all those who have a strong interest in the development of a vibrant cultural events scene in Birr and its hinterland. It’s vitally important that every organisation in the town is represented and any interested members of the public join us on the night.”
